J.V. is 3 in 0 with their win against Gila Bend High. Coach Taylor is extremely proud of this team. “Heritage Softball continues to grow as JV players continue to better themselves.  Our players have a “growth mindset.” They believe that their intelligence, athletic abilities, and character are things that they can improve in meaningful ways.  For many of our players, softball is more than a sport.  The team has become family, and the game has become a passion and for some possibly even their destiny.  They amaze me at their ability to learn and get better at what they do each week. They believe in themselves and each other.” What more could a coach ask for. Their next game is April 13th at home against Berean Academy.

Safety-First-scaled

As we drop off and pick up scholars at school, we need to respect our neighbors.  They have been reporting to law enforcement the speeding in the neighborhood, blocking driveways and blowing through stop signs.  All traffic laws should be obeyed on and off campus.

Arrive-Early

Plan to leave home sooner in the morning to get your scholars to school on time.  The closer you arrive to the start of school, the more traffic there will be.  Scholars can be dropped off as early as 7:20.  We do have a strict tardy policy and know that traffic can slow down starting at 7:40.  Please plan accordingly.  

Friday-Appointments
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school.  Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR
